My family and I took a half-day rock tour with Bruce and it was easily one of my best experiences in London. Bruce was very knowledgeable and gave us a fascinating tour of the city. Not only was he well-versed in music history, he was also very kind to my children and made sure to include sites and facts about... More

So the sites are great, the van is comfortable, guide is knowledgeable BUT the van does not have a microphone and it is almost impossible to hear. I also would have expected a better planned playlist. The music skipped around, like a teenager trying to find the perfect make out song. I mean the CDs skipped. It could have been... More

On Sunday the 19th of July 2015 we went on the tour called "Beatle Express A Ticket to Ride" and WHAT A TOUR. Our guide, Bruce, was excellent. He knew so much about not only - of course - The Beatles but also about London. He told us all the best stories about The Beatles, showed us a lot of... More

Ian our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable about everything from the 60's British Invasion era to the late '70's punk era. Tour provides a great historical overview of the history of rock music in London. In addition to visiting Abbey Road and various British musicians homes, Ian takes you to landmark venues and historic locations no longer standing. For the... More

Fantastic value for money and you really do get to see so much. Time for a stop along the way and we seemingly never got stuck in traffic. Limitless levels of knowledge of the guides! A real personal touch throughout what will become a tour personalised to your interests.

Went on the beatles tour , after reading the reviews was looking forward to some banter with bruce , but alas he was not our tour guide .Maybe we already knew too much of the history before we embarked on the tour but felt it was a little formulaic and didnt learn anything new .However i was very pleased with...

The morning tour we took was an amazing experience. That's mainly because our guide, Bruce, was an encyclopedia of rock. With his help we discovered places in London near which we passed a day before, without knowing how much history lays there. The Denmark street is just one example. Beyond his fascinating stories about famous bands and musicians, he played... More

This was the highlight of our trip, given we had originally come to see the Foo Fighters (which was subsequently cancelled due to Dave Grohl breaking his leg). The guide was very knowledgeable and very witty. Saw all kinds of history with the Beatles, Stones, Zeppelin, Queen, Pink Floyd, Jimi, Sex Pistols and more. I will definitely look into more... More

Brilliant experience. Very informative. Took us to a wide range of sites. Rob combined an entertaining commentary based on his own research, humour and facts. Great fun. We would recomend it.
